I see this point. Probably just two buttons is best ($10/month vs.
One-Time).

I think some people will be reluctant to sign up for anything recurring
(i.e. potentially hard to cancel later). That's how I think about
things myself, for example. An organization I might be perfectly happy
to give a couple hundred bucks to would still not get a $10/month
recurring charge authorized from me.... not just as a question of
charities and generosity: I likewise choose to pay extra to my gym to
avoid an automated monthly withdrawal from my checking. I like every
outflow to result from a specific proximal action by me.
